 Greeneville City Schools ranked ninth in the nation for its innovative uses of technology by the Center for Digital Education’s Digital School Districts Survey Awards. As one of the top-ten ranked school boards/districts in the 12th annual Digital School Districts Survey, Greeneville City Schools joins an exclusive group of districts using technology to improve the learning and teaching experience, communicate with students, parents, and the community, and streamline district operations.

The Digital School Districts Survey top-ten rankings are awarded to the school systems that most fully implement technology benchmarks in the evolution of digital education. All U.S. public school districts are eligible to participate in the Digital School Districts Survey. This year, Greeneville City Schools ranked in the top 10 nationwide for districts with 3000 students or less. 

“Thank you to our teachers, students, administrators and community for making the digital transformation a reality,” said Dr. Jeff Moorhouse, Director of Greeneville City Schools. “This award is a testament to the hard work and commitment of Greeneville City Schools to effectively use technology to best meet the needs of its digital learners.”

On April 21, the Greeneville City Schools will host a Digital Transformation Community Event where student groups will present the various ways they are using technology to enhance their learning. Everyone is invited to attend this event at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center starting at 6:00 p.m.

GCS Digital Transformation

The Greeneville City School District believes it is imperative that students living and learning in the district master and routinely practice 21st century skills that are relevant to both present and future success. To date, GCS has purchased over 2,000 student devices through the Reach4IT campaign and other grants. These devices are being utilized and incorporated into curriculum in a variety of ways by enthusiastic GCS educators. Starting in 2016, all students in grades 3-8 have a laptop to use in the classroom. GCS is committed to meeting the needs of our students in a student-centered, engaging learning environment.
